GWC 4.0 Finale and Awards Celebration

Sustainability: A Winning Play for Workplaces and the Region

Featured Keynote Presentation by Robert (Bob) Nutting

Principal owner of the Pittsburgh Pirates, owner of Seven Springs Mountain Resort, and CEO of Ogden Newspapers

Arguably the most powerful force driving sustainability today, customers large and small expect the organizations they support to do well by their employees, communities, and the environment — an opportunity for savvy leaders.  Nutting describes the competitive edge sustainability offers for organizations of all types, with advantages ranging from differentiation in the market to operational savings, employee engagement, and product innovation.  He’ll share the bottom-line benefits of sustainable business practices at organizations as diverse as PNC Park, Seven Springs Mountain Resort, and century-old Ogden Newspapers.  Every organizational action contributes to a more competitive economy and region and a better quality of life for all.
